ISEG was the School of Economics and Management that pioneered the teaching of quantitative methods at Masters' level in Portugal. In 1982, the Masters in Mathematical Methods for Economics and Business Administration was launched, which taught econometrics, and was considered a research area for dissertations. In 1988, this degree was replaced by the Masters in Applied Mathematics for Economics and Management, with similar characteristics. From this Masters, several Masters were created in 2002, including the Masters in Applied Econometrics and Forecasting (MEAP), which is more practical and more focussed on Econometrics (and its sub-areas, such as Microeconometrics, Macroeconometrics, and Econometrics of Time Series). Its study plan suffered a major redefinition in 2007, with the adaptation of the "Bologna agreement", and its final format is defined in Order No. 10897/2010 of 11 June (published in the DR on 1 July, 2010).

At first, the Masters functioned with a biennial frequency, but since the 2008/2009 Academic Year it has been in operation every year, and is expected to do so in the future, with its 9 th Edition starting in 2014/2015.

The course will be taught in English starting in 2020/2021.



The Masters aims to educate specialised staff of financial institutions, companies, and other public and private organisations that use the analysis and processing of data as a support for decision-making, as well as university professors and researchers.

To this end, it aims to develop the ability to integrate theoretical and empirical knowledge critically and creatively, and to familiarise students with various IT programmes for quantitative analysis
